    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Buckley


    When preparing to meet with a personal injury lawyer in Buckley, it is essential to provide all documents. Failure to plan and produce the necessary paperwork will eat into the length of time it takes to receive your compensation.

    Bring along any photographs you or someone else were able to take at the scene. A personal injury lawyer in Buckley will look for photographic evidence of the accident and injuries sustained. Print them out and take them along with you. These pictures are vital documents which back up your written account of events. They are the eyes that witnessed and captured the evidence as it happened. Try to avoid using digital files, as it could make it harder for a personal injury lawyer to discuss a case when photos are not readily available to peruse.

    The power to maximise the amount of compensation received by using all legitimate means available

    If the police were present, bring along a copy of their report. If this is unavailable, your own in-depth account of the event will suffice. You might also want to practise verbally recalling the events so that they can be explained without becoming confused or muddled.

    If you have the contact details of witnesses present, be sure to include full contact details. If there were no witnesses, mention any people who were present at the time. A lawyer in Buckley may be able to use this information to track those people down.

    A great track record for recovering millions of pounds in compensation awards

    If you were examined by a doctor, be sure to mention this. A medical report helps when calculating a settlement figure. A copy of your insurance policy should also be provided. You should also include the name and contact details of the insurance company for the third party.

    Professional and compassionate

    Any correspondence from the defendant or their insurance company should be included in your paperwork, along with any letters you have sent. Include everything, even if it is something as little as a notification letter to say that your request is being processed.

    Finally, it may be worthwhile asking a friend or family member to accompany you on your first visit, as it can sometimes feel overwhelming to relive a traumatic ordeal. Someone who has had close contact with you since the accident would be ideal. They may also be able to provide important information which you may overlook when under pressure.

    In the run-up to your first meeting, your head will be reeling with questions that you may wish to ask. Be sure to jot them down as they spring to mind.

    If you want answers to questions but have not yet made up your mind as to whether you would like to take matters further, Accident Advice Helpline are available now to offer free guidance. Call our freephone number on 0800 689 0500.
